An idea I wrote and captured for the band. Not polished. Our lead singer is a female, so it is ridiculously awesome, live.
Love sharing our metal with you fuckers. \m/

I like the crisp drums and heavy guitars. The dark content of the lyrics complements the instrumental track well. The vocals, while very good overall, came through as a little dry sometimes, and the delay effects seemed like a bit of a formulaic solution to that. Maybe some reverb, chorus effects, or other mastering tools would help them sound fuller? The ending is also a tad sudden, but other than that I have very few complaints. I love the passion of the vocals and the pace set by the guitars. Keep up the good work, B-M-I!

Thanks man, glad you dig it overall. This is just a captured idea for the tune. Basically drums, press record. No mastering at all. Volume and channel control. Basically record it 4 times, with two slightly different tones, panned hard left and right and mid left and right. Then volumes. Zero post on the guitars.

I have a pretty standard set op for doing all this. It's mostly volume control. You are absolutely correct about the formulaic solution! To eliminate the work on the vocals, I record with minor delay on, set to the tempo of the song - so I don't do any post work. Just a minor compression, which fills up the delay. Eliminates a lot of work, for the idea of it and it still passes! Thanks for the review, mang!

Always amazing stuff. Just came back to Newgrounds after many years away. You're still kicking out the jams! Huzzah!

Sounds badass bro! Cool hearing a new track from ya! \m/ Has a cinematic vibe from 0:50 and out, which is damn nice.

haha nice dude!

My only beef is that it feels like I am listening to this from behind the drummer - with the singer being the farthest away - might wanna reverse the mastering a big so that the voice is a bit higher - but that's just a personal mastering beef.

This feels very metallica-ish hehe - good job on bringing the classic metal!

rock on sexy :P

thanks mang. All good. There was zero mix and master in this. Just recording the idea, for the band sakes.
